5 Minutes with Jesus

5 Minutes with Jesus
Peace for Today
Sheila Walsh
Our days can become so busy that we rush from one thing to another. Begin each day with a short devotional that will leave you with the peace of Jesus. Each devotional has a thought for the day and then ends with a section called "Five Minutes in the Word" that includes several scriptures that tie in to the devotional. 

The book is small, has a bendable cover, and fits well in my purse for those rushed, out the door mornings. Each day has a thought that centers around the peace and calm that can only come from time with Jesus. The author uses stories and antidotes to help illustrate her thoughts and ties everything together with scripture. I really liked the extra scripture at the end of the devotional. Each text is written out so the reader doesn't need to grab their Bible if they are pressed for time or taking the book to another location. Overall, this was a beautiful little book that had some great thoughts. It would work well for a gift, but I intend to keep mine.
I received this book free of charge from Harper Collins in exchange for my honest review.
